Micromega M-One

From Micromega:
No single audio product before the M-One delivers such a feature-packed and modern product that fits into such a small and elegant space – crafted from a single block of Aluminium.

Against all the odds, our engineers have managed to incorporate all the latest connections – Airplay, Bluetooth aptX, LAN-Network 24bit /384kHz Asynchronous, SPDIF Coax-Opto-AES 24bit / 768kHz USB asynchronous passing DXD, DSD, DOP…, Phono MM / MC, Analog balanced and unbalanced inputs, and DSP with automatic room correction (M.A.R.S). All in an amazingly compact module, whose cabinet is cut in the mass of a single block of aluminum.

It’s an absolute engineering miracle !

And I thought...have they not visited the Devialet room? I know, catty.

The M-One comes in two version the M-One 100 (€3000) and M-One 150 the difference being the associated output power into 8ohms indicated by their name. Of course the real interest, beyond the engineering and industrial design, lies in the listening which I did not have an opportunity to do in any focused manner since the Micromega display was part of a much larger room. Another product pegged for in-barn listening.

I've never seen a bathroom scale with XLR inputs before.

Seriously, though, I hope it's killer. Micromega always delivers.
